Elias helped me make a pumpkin cake with cream cheese icing. (YUM!) Since it was just us, we halved the recipe and only made one layer.
|The 1 candle just happened to be the only one we had in the house that would work on a cake. But hey, Jesus is God's one and only Son, not to mention He's just #1. So it works.|
|The balloons looked pretty awesome when the fan was spinning! On the back wall is Elias' Christmas-themed artwork, some from school and some we did at home.|
Then, instead of giving gifts to each other, we chose various missions and ministries, and we gave donations as our gifts to Jesus, since He is the Birthday Boy after all!
It was really a lot of fun, and the birthday party atmosphere really resonated with Elias. There was absolutely no confusion at all about what we were celebrating and why. Happy Birthday, Jesus!!!
